Libra - May 2019
Hey Libra! Relationships are in the spotlight for you in May, as your house of partners is buzzing with planetary activity! Venus lingers here until the 15th, offering you continued opportunities to express your affection to your loved one, and her passionate sextile with Mars during the days of the 5th to 15th is a promising connection to find love on a holiday or higher education course. If you meet someone new now this person will share important spiritual, religious and moral values with you, hence you could also find a new love through a church or psychic group. Just take care around the 3rd to 10th when Venus squares the Moon’s nodes; arguments over extended family issues could arise at this time. Mercury also sticks around until the 6th, facilitating conversations with your other half by providing clear air and mental clarity for you both. His trine with Jupiter during this week is also fabulous for talking through your big plan for your future together.
The Sun meets Mercury in your house of transformation and regeneration between the 16th and 21st, an intense week of re-evaluating your priorities and being truthful about what is and isn’t working in your personal life. Connections with others, emotionally and materially, will need be talked through at this time, in order that you can truly understand how you feel. If you share financial responsibilities with another, they may hear good news now about a pay rise or bonus, and you will probably find you are talking more than usual together about money. The new Moon of the 4th also shines a light on this part of your solar chart, a positive period for taking on a loan or mortgage. The full Moon of the 18th turns your attention back to your own possessions and money, and how self-sufficient you really are in this part of your life. This is a good time to face financial issues head on and work out a plan to set yourself on the right track.
Jupiter is retrograde now in your communication sector, and May is a month for thinking carefully before you commit yourself verbally to plans, ideologies and educational obligations. Jupiter is an expansive, optimistic influence on our lives, and the past few months have probably been very open and liberating at a conversational level, as the world has welcomed your opinions on just about everything! But if you committed yourself inadvertently to someone or something, you will be expected to honour that commitment now, and it could make you a little warier of how you express yourself. Jupiter’s opposition with Mars during the first fortnight of the month could also take you into debates with those who tutor or mentor you, as they question your methods and views. This could also be a time for changing course at work or in your education, and issues around a neighbour or your local community will finally become too big to ignore and need to be dealt with.
Mars marches masterfully into your career sector on the 17th, and will soon have you following those dreams with determination and confidence. You will be offered many opportunities now to show off your leadership skills and run important creative projects. Mars’s sextile with Uranus during the latter half of May will send you some very original and inventive ideas for making money; you could also receive unexpected news of financial support for your ventures during this phase. People supporting you now will be inspirational but possibly a little rebellious or unpredictable, so make sure you have covered all bases! Have a wonderful month!
